http://www.tki.org.nz/e/schools/

TKI stands for Te Kete Ipurangi - The Online Learning Centre. It's a site put out by the Ministry of Education. The link will take you straight to the search page for schools on the English language part of the site (as opposed to the Maori language part). When you've found a school, click on the name to get a list about it. The decile rating will be at the bottom.

ero reports are on ero.govt.nz

Decile ratings are pretty meaningless unless they are right at the bottom end of the scale.

Miss, I agree, it seems that unless its a 1-3, it's meaningless these days. And they're quite misleading too, as some areas should be lower but developments in the area push the decile up etc.

Also, if you plan on staying in your area for a while, check what intermediate the primary school contributes to if it's not a full primary (Yr 0-8).

Sometimes the comparison of decile ratings between schools (especially of different types eg primary and intermediate or intermediate and college) can tell you a little about the area.

Ohakune Primary School (Kiya's school) is a decile 5. Ruapehu College (the school Nat teaches at) is one block over, and is a decile 3. The reason for the difference is that the college doesn't have a great local reputation so those that can afford it send their children to boarding school in Wanganui.

It can also be misleading - Gladstone primary for example has a lower decile rating than you expect. This is because there is a large number of single income families there with SAHM - that is part of the factoring in of a decile status.

Also some areas, especially with rural components in the decile rating are lower than they are in reality as farmers (for example) can underreport income, another factor in decile rating.

It is advantageous to have a lower rating if possible as it means more government funding.

Also remember just becaus ethe decile rating is low doesn't mean that its a bad school. There are still awesome teahers at lower decile schools and quite often they get alot of extra money from the community to do things!

Also, it may change ALOT in the few years until your bub is off to school, so it may pay to keep an open mind about more than one school...

Thanks for your opinions and recommendations
It's so difficult to choose a school for your kids on your own

Hi! There is nothing difficult in that, bro. There are a lot of useful ratings on the internet like this one https://www.prepler.com/best-colleges-for-finance-and-accounting Simple, right? Just check more info about the university where you would like to enter and that's it. GL!

Education is generally separated formally into such stages as preschool or kindergarten, primary school, secondary school and after that school, college, or apprenticeship. A right to 1z0-449 Certs Exams Practice Test education has been perceived by a few governments and the United Nations.
